There are many reasons a movie could flop at the box office. Poor or insufficient marketing, the release date, competition at the theaters, lack of star power, unfavorable reviews, etc. Some of these potential problem-causers could be the fault of the film makers themselves or the production company. Others, such as the response from critics, can’t really be prevented to the same extent. Plus, there’s that elusive phenomenon that can’t be tracked – word of mouth. The point is, many factors that could contribute to a movie flopping at the box office have little to do with the actual content of the film itself. Just because a movie flops doesn’t mean it isn’t any good or isn’t worth seeing. Here is our list of movies that are incredibly popular despite flopping.
